Well it's that time to upgrade the PJ again. X1 was my first, bulb burst, sold it on ebay, and bought a BenQ PB6200. Now that bulb is around 2000hrs so it's time to upgrade again.


I'd like your recommendations on the best PJ that runs native widescreen at 720p for HD and PC content. I upconvert my DVDs through the HTPC and will run the desktop resolution and games at the PJs native rez. I watch a little SD cable, and a lot of HD content. Everything runs through my HTPC, and I'd like to use the DVI --> DVI or HDMI.


My limit is around $3,000. I liked the PB-6200's brightness because I do watch the PJ during the day sometimes and I can only block about 50% of the light in this room. I'd like a 3000hr+ bulb if possible so I can wait a year and a half to upgrade again :)


Thanks for your help!

That seems like a winner. Looks like the MSRP is $2499. Any forum supporting dealers running deals on this PJ?

take a good look at the Mitsubishi HC3000. AVS is running a promo on them until the end of the year as documented in the sticky thread above. If I were buying a new 720p PJ today, that is what I would be looking at. Offhand, I'm not sure about the brightness.
